Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. This week we have a color challenge.
We are using Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand, and Pear Pizzazz. As you know Stampin' Up! is going through a Color Revamp. I'm happy to say that all of these colors made it into the new catalog! Yes, Flirty Flamingo quickly went from a retiring In Color to one of the 10 in the Brights collection. Go Flirty Flamingo!
Here is my card for this week.
My card today shows all new product except for one thing. I am using paper from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. At the time that I'm writing this post, (I'm a few days ahead) this paper was still in stock. I would be surprised if that is still true today.
This cards begins with a card base of Sahara Sand measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Fold at 4 1/4. Stamp in Sahara Sand over this front of the base. All stamps for my project today come from the Love What You Do stamp set. It's on the Early Release.
The Coffee Break paper is cut at 2 x 5 1/2.
On Whisper White stamp the watercolor look background stamp. I used the Flirty Flamingo and stamped off first. Using Basic Black Archival ink, stamp the large flowers. I used the archival ink because I would be using the Aqua Painter. I did use my Stamperatus to make sure to get a good dark print. Squeese the lid of the stamp pad to get ink there. Use an Aqua Painter to color in the three flowers. I did stamp an additional flower for the bottom flower. Color it in, cut out and adhere later over the original with dimensionals.
Stamp the other stems, two in Memento Black and the other in Pear Pizzazz. Color in the flowers in Flirty Flamingo and the dots at the ends of the other stem with a Sahara Sand marker. You will need to cut these stems out with your snips. It does take time, but it is so worth it!
The Layering Circle Framelits were used to cut out the white layer and a scalloped Basic Black layer. Adhere with dimensionals.
Stamp out thank you in Flirty Flamingo and fussy cut it as well. Some will need glue and a few places will need dimensionals.
The inside of the card is all Love What You Do. Stamp the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo. Add plants in the lower right corner similar to the outside.
